You opened with the race card but failed to follow thru on it. I have to assume that big-bucks investors are adults and capable of making their own evaluations, and if you place a bet then you may not win but if you never bet then you cannot ever win. I have to agree with you that this smells all tech bubbly and partying like it’s 1999. But frankly, mediocre whiteness did not slow down Mr. Z’s rise to the stratosphere and therefore I do not see how either skin color or lack of any discernible talent other than chutzpah relate to your conclusion.

Like what you read? Give J. Reed Schrichte a round of applause.
